Mozilla Firefox Data Analysis Tools

This is a starting point for making sense of (and gaining access to) all of the Firefox-related data analysis tools. There are a number of different tools available, all with their own strengths, tailored to a variety of use cases and skill sets.

sql.telemetry.mozilla.org (STMO)

The sql.telemetry.mozilla.org (STMO) site is an instance of the very fine Re:dash software, allowing for SQL-based exploratory analysis and visualization / dashboard construction. Requires (surprise!) familiarity with SQL, and for your data to be explicitly exposed as an STMO data source. Bugs or feature requests can be reported in our issue tracker.

Databricks

Offers notebook interface with shared, always-on, autoscaling cluster (attaching your notebooks to shared_serverless_python3 is the best way to start). Convenient for quick data investigations. Users are advised to join the databricks-discuss@mozilla.com group.

telemetry.mozilla.org (TMO)

Our telemetry.mozilla.org (TMO) site is the 'venerable standby' of Firefox telemetry analysis tools. It uses aggregate telemetry data (as opposed to the collated data sets that are exposed to most of the other tools) so it provides less latency than most but is unsuitable for examining at the individual client level. It provides a powerful UI that allows for sophisticated ad-hoc analysis without the need for any specialized programming skills, but with so many options the UI can be a bit intimidating for novice users.
